I only wear makeup when I'm leaving the house for a few hours during the day.

But if I stay home or something then I don't wear any (all natural).

If I'm taking a very long road trip (like we do when we go back home to Texas to go see my mother), then I only wear lipgloss/lipstick and mascara. That's it though.

I don't wear makeup at all, unless you count chapstick. I'm totally fine with leaving the house to run errands or whatever with no makeup. I will wear a moisturizer with an SPF though, but that's more for protection than anything else.

The times I do wear makeup:

- Sometimes going out to lunch with friends or a date, casual to semi-formal.
** I'd put on some lip gloss or lipstick and mascara. If I'm up to it I'll even throw on a little bit of eyeshadow, usually neutral colors.

- Going on a date or somewhere nice.
** Mascara, shadow,eyeliner just on top, lip gloss/lipstick and blush.

- If I'm going somewhere where I know I'll have my picture taken (weddings, social stuff).
** concealer, powder, mascara, false lashes, shadow (I play up the colors), liner on top and bottom, lipstick and blush.

Like I said though, I usually go bare. Part of it is laziness. I know I have to take that stuff off at the end of the day.

Every single day without fail I put on Bare Escentuals Bisque to cover up my "facial flaws" and I put on some form of lipstick/lip gloss/chapstick. If my face is shiny I'll throw on some Maybelline translucent loose powder. I have other makeup but almost never wear it.

I like the natural look!!! LOL....everyone says I look younger then my age. I have oily skin, so there isn't much I can wear on my face without it causing acne. Yes, even at almost 40...I still get acne

Besides, I never learned how to put make-up on!!! And I don't want to look like a clown when I'm done..LOL

Now, my mother on the other hand...had the same skin type but did always wear A LOT of makeup. I always attributed her not looking so young though to her drinking and excessive drinking...

I don't usually leave the house without moisturizer, pore minimizer, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick. If I'm going to some social activity, I'll also wear foundation and blush too.

I don't wear makeup at all. I wear lip moisturizer only. I look young for my age also. As I age I might be more inclined to try minimal makeup.

I do wear eye make up and barely any powder (under eyes mostly), but not every single day. Mascara only when I'm trying to be super fancy. I never use foundation (I think it looks weird on me). I tend to use natural-looking lip liner to define, and wear a lot of chapstick, not a lot of lip gloss. I imagine myself growing into not wearing any... we'll see!

Now that I am retired, I never put on makeup unless I am going "somewhere special". Otherwise, no. Same with wearing a watch.
